The deadline for the public vote is this Thursday, August 12th.
Youghal native Dr Sinead Kane has been nominated by Junior Chambers International as one of the world’s top 20 outstanding young people for her endeavors in the field of personal accomplishment… and you can help her scoop the top spot.
The well-known speaker, double PhD doctorate, double Guinness World Record holder and lecturer on disability law, policy and human rights is also a qualified lawyer, a writer with the Irish Criminal Law Journal, and an accomplished athlete and marathon runner, despite only having five percent vision and being registered as legally blind.
JCI’s annual Top Outstanding Young Persons Awards acknowledge young people who are excelling across a variety of categories and Sinead is the only Irish person to be named among the world’s top 20 nominees this year.
Carol Ho, National President of JCI Ireland, said the Junior Chamber Ireland is very hopeful that Sinead will go on to wave the Irish flag among the 10 Top Outstanding Young Persons in the world but stressed that the final selection process includes a public vote element.
